Default RE: Biggest Game for .54 Ball ?

The Boers had a tradition of sending a young boy out with two rounds of ammo to hunt alone.He either came back with meat or both unfired rounds or he could expect a licking with the cleaning rod.They would lay up watching a waterhole and line up two Thompson gazelles to save on ammo.usually iron sighted 95 mausers in 7x57 with 175gr FMJ's.Ask the British if they could shoot?..............Harold
